my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis made a simple trip to the grocery store anything but simple. so finally, i had an important conversation with mdermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults saw 75% skin clearance. and the majority were clear or almost clear in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your dermatologist about humira.

6:17 am
from wakefield where the national weather service right anderson i take a short ride go out there and spend time taking a look at the damage that is out there to look for a few things they look for there is no clear lines of destruction you razor sharp cutoff between areas that were hit hard or is it a much broader wider area that's one thing kind of a difference between straight line winds or outflow in a tornado a tornado will cut a path a lot of times. another thing to look for is the debris is that kind of uniform in all like let's see trees down telling the same direction or the throne in different directions kind of like dropping a handful of pickup sticks if you remember that he will fall in different directions and then the third thing they look for is signs of excessive force is there anything really weird like a straw in the side of a building or something that you know it would take really you know incredible winds to do weird things so they look for those and then they take a look at the overall destruction and they try to say ok this storm front was this part of building came down it was a
6:18 am
building whatever that's how they determine how strong and quick question because a lot of people are going to be filing damage claims. pray that the insurance company will cover with or see the assessment going on today is for historical and statistical purposes has nothing to do with how much are correct this isn't provide to combat this isn't like a hurricane where he had no name storm has this verse is that you know when damage is wind damage and stronger storms obviously everybody is looking to their own insurance policies but the reason they do the survey is so that the national weather service has an accurate record of weather the storm produced a tornado for their own research and to refine their forecasting practices going forward and for statistical reasons as you know we continue to constantly put this information to the computer models that helped us make better forecasts in the future. so a lot going on around waverly and the national weather service will be issuing more reports on that will pass along right nicer weather for today but
